MD Education


Teaching of medical students is an integral part of the function of the Section of Infectious Diseases. At any time there are two to four students along with one to three residents making rounds with the Infectious Diseases team. Medical students are expected to evaluate new consultations, present the information to the team, be aware of diagnostic and therapeutic options, and return on a daily basis to assess changes in clinical status. In addition, medical students are expected to attend and give conferences on relevant topics during their Infectious Diseases rotation.
